70:30 – An overview….
70:30 is a concept developed by SAS to be used as part of a bespoke treatment plan, a group workshop, or as a stand-alone therapy session, to address work and home related stress and high levels of anxiety.
The principals of 70:30 are to provide an understanding of stress and anxiety and to give coping strategies to maximise employee confidence and performance.
In short, following a 70:30 treatment, an employee would be able to focus on giving 70% of quality time to their work and 30% focusing on themselves and their own wellbeing, taking regular relaxation breaks, concentrating on breathing, eating healthy and regular, drinking plenty of water, exercising, stretching when needed, stepping away from their desk, taking a short break outdoors.
Similarly, when at home, they would focus 70% of their quality time on family and friends, whilst 30% of their time would be to relax and enjoy their own personal pastimes, hobbies and activities.
Bespoke Treatment Plan: Employees, referred to SAS, with complex mental health problems are often given 70:30 as part of their treatment plan, since many conditions are adversely affected by or caused by stress and anxiety. This simple technique, can accelerate recovery from most mental health disorders.
Group Workshop: Groups of employees can attend a workshop designed to give them an understanding of stress and anxiety (work or home related) and give them coping strategies to build resilience and improve performance.
The workshop will be delivered by an SAS therapist with specialist knowledge and experience in the treatment of stress and anxiety.
The outcome of the therapy will be that each employee understands their own stressors and the resulting symptoms. They will be empowered with coping strategies, to be able to assess any potentially stressful situation, focussing on performing at an optimum level, whilst remaining calm and composed and fully professional.
Following the workshop, each employee will be provided with written and audio self-help exercises, that they can use to reinforce the techniques and knowledge they have learned and continue to develop positive habits, so that their levels of performance are maximised, whilst they maintain control over their levels of stress and anxiety.
Stand-alone therapy session: Each employee referred, will be given a 90-minute appointment, including consultation, to identify the employee’s signs, symptoms and stressors, followed by a bespoke treatment session to address the findings in the consultation.
Treatment will be delivered by an SAS therapist, using our unique Functional Integrated Therapy*, that allows each therapy session to be bespoke to the employee being treated and using all appropriate therapies in the learning style of the employee.
The outcome of the therapy will be that each employee understands their own stressors and the resulting symptoms. They will be empowered with their own coping strategies, to be able to assess any potentially stressful situation, focussing on performing at an optimum level, whilst remaining calm and composed and fully professional in the despatch of their duties.
Following the therapy session, each employee will be provided with written and audio self-help exercises, that they can use in the future to reinforce the therapy and continue to develop positive habits, so that their levels of performance are maximised, whilst they maintain control over their levels of stress and anxiety.

*Functional Integrated Therapy (FIT), is the name given to our own technique of integrating innovative therapies and modalities.
SAS-fit residential care
When people consider, or are referred for residential care, the traditional clinics may be effective in treating the person’s ‘Go-to’ coping strategies, such as self-harm, gambling, addiction to drugs, addiction to alcohol (or both), but do not include, in their treatment, identifying and treating the root-cause of their issues and the reason for the problematic coping strategies.
SAS-fit are different.
Referral to SAS-fit includes a consultation to assess your employee prior to their entry into residential care. This ensures that residential care is necessary and also identifies the root-cause of the employee’s issues and their symptoms.
If residential care is the way forward, and before your employee goes into our clinic, they will begin their treatment, so that progress is already being made and that they understand their issues, their treatment and the part that they play in their recovery.
For example, someone with a long-standing, deep-seated alcohol dependency will be given therapy to provide an understanding of the self-harm aspect of their condition and to address and remove any emotion around their issues that is contributing to their symptoms.
They will then enter into residential care, at one of our four establishments, for the necessary medicated detoxification.
When appropriate, one of our therapists will attend the residential clinic, to enhance their recovery, using our own ‘Functional Integrated Therapy’ and 4T Trauma therapy, in tandem with the treatment for their addiction.
This will provide continuity and ensure that they are ready for the final phase of recovery, relapse prevention.
Once your employee has completed their residential care, they would resume their treatment with their SAS-fit therapist, who will provide the coping strategies to prevent any relapse and resumption of their addiction.
Treatment will continue until all aspects of their symptoms have been addressed and they will be provided with audio and written exercises to future-proof their resilience.
They will also be offered a ‘booster-session’ should any new, unforeseen events or circumstances arise during their recovery period.
Of course, as with all SAS-fit treatment plans, confidentiality will be of paramount importance.
SAS-fit residential care comes at a fixed price, with two levels of accommodation. The price includes pre-residential treatment, residential care and post-residential, relapse-prevention therapy.
The cost is dependent on the length of the residential care, that can be assessed with the following table.
